Mary Kay hosts STEAM summit for young women leaders

by Maciej Maciejewski

Mary Kay Inc. hosted 25 young women from Young Women’s Preparatory Network (YWPN), a nonprofit that operates all-girl, public, college preparatory schools within Texas public school districts.


The high school students toured Mary Kay’s R&D Center to learn about the company’s STEAM-related manufacturing processes and listened to a panel of female experts in the STEAM field discuss upstream innovation, product formulation, information technology, product research, portfolio & strategy planning and process development.

– Mary Kay is committed to empowering and inspiring the next generation of women to pursue their passions – because the future is STEAM. Women are underrepresented in the STEAM workforce, but we can narrow that gap by providing critical early learning opportunities and exposure for young women to seek out and explore STEAM careers of interest – said Dr. Lucy Gildea, Mary Kay chief innovation officer, product and science.
